This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy copper pour with a frothy beige head, aroma has lemon, biscuit, taste has biscuity malts, some citrus, light bitterness, quite basic.

colui72 (662) - HONG KONG - APR 13, 2016
It pours murky amber, with a large creamy head. Aroma is floral, fruity, herbal somehow. Thin in the palate, but quite tasty (grapefruit, peach, pine), little hops, no booze. Not bad, not the best IPA, but certainly a decent drink.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 8, 2016
0.1 draft. A hazy brown color with virtually no head. Sweet aroma of pale malts, unusual mixture of hops; grassy, fruity, and floral scents. Taste is kind of watered down, hoppy, some tea is there too - meeh. A medium body, a slick and smooth texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, smacks of tea - not bitter at all. Overall not a bad beer, certainly different from the mainstream.

adasko (1882) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Tap na BGM. Piwo średnie jak na IPA. Zduszone nuty chmielowe w aromacie i w smaku, dość mocno przebija się słodowść. Brakuje goryczki. Nie do końca moja bajka jeżeli chodzi o ten styl.

DylansDad (586) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2016
Aroma of fresh grass, and lots of it, some hay and cereal. I found the aroma very reminicent of old skool classic Steinlager, but way better. Thin body, drinks like a lager. Taste is grass malt, light grapefruit and a touch of not-quite-ripe berries at the edges. Slightest hint of stainless steel at the back. I enjoyed this a lot; it’s very easy drinking and simple but not overly so. It’s very lager-ish and If this were a lager, and if most lagers were this good, I’d be a lager-boy.

Amber, hazy, small long lasting white foam, some citrus, caramel, little bit yeasty? Medium bitterness, medium- sweetness, medium body, little oily feel, average carbonation, quite long bitter astringent finish

Aroma is clove,lemongrass, sulphur. Taste is very subtle and gentle with farmhouse feel, tart and light caramel. Appearance is a hazy brown/orange with a medium fluffy head that retains very well.

KW92 (1227) - Warszawa, POLAND - FEB 16, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana wysoka, drobna, trwała.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Bardzo owocowy...malinowy zapach. Malinowa herbatka, a właściwie powinienem napisać: "Krüger Herbatynka Malinowa", tak to pachnie, co nie znaczy, że to jakis minus, po prostu czuć ją na kilometr. W tle granat, czerwona porzeczka i może mirabelka.
SMAK: Słodowe, gorzka zielona herbata Ponownie garbnikowy, ściągającym, gorzki smak. Tak więc goryczka wysoka, długa.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo "oryginalne" piwo. Dla mnie rewelacja.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Mooie donkere kleur maar weinig schuim. Mooie hopsmaak. Bier uit Japan bevalt me erg goed.
